You can still experience the joys of diving in the clear blue waters of Key Largo without being a certified diver. As our most popular class, the Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) program draws people from all over the world because it is fun, safe, and open to people of all backgrounds – you just need to be able to swim!
The Discover Scuba Diving program allows you to experience the thrill of scuba diving under the direct supervision of a professional scuba instructor. It begins in the comfort of a swimming pool where you learn basic skills and feel comfortable with your equipment. That same afternoon, complete two dives in pristine Key Largo, where we often see turtles, rays, grouper, lobster, parrotfish, angelfish, cats, eels, lots of corals, and the occasional dolphin.
Your fun-filled day begins with a meeting at 8:30 a.m. at our store located in Wilton Manors to meet with the team, complete necessary paperwork and watch an informational video. After getting ready, we head to the pool and then leave for Key Largo’s John Pennekamp Marine Sanctuary where you will experience the euphoria of your first ocean dives with a PADI certified instructor by your side, guiding you at all times.
Prerequisites: swimsuit, towel, the ability to swim and sense of adventure.
If there is someone in your group who would like to join you but not take the Discover Scuba class, he or she can come in the same boat that you will be in for only $ 75. For more information on our snorkeling excursions, click here.
